Marie-Louise Arpe Munksgaard & Maria Therese Hadad

Studenteropgave: Kandidatprojekt


This project is a social science interdisciplinary project in business administration studies. In the project we are working with the problem formulation: What the relation between trust and innovation is in a public organization and how the management can, through increased employee engagement - based on Tillidsreformen - , promote innovation that creates value for public institutions. To answer our problem formulation, we will in the project examine: What innovation is and what types of innovation can occur in public organizations - including those affected by Tillidsreformen, and What strategies/approaches can management of public organizations (institutions) use to promote innovation. By examining the three keyconcepts: Trust, Engagement and Innovation and the way the concepts are interpreted and used in three different levels of the public sector, in relation to Tillidsreformen and the sixth principle of the reform concerning innovation, this project: “Innovation and innovation management in the public sector” will describe and analyze the subject with collected empirical evidence and theories including: Top-down, bottom-up, bricolage, trust, engagement, innovation, sensemaking. This project and its findings are relevant material for the management of the public sector including the three levels: Political organizations, municipalities and public leaders, as it examines an issue that concerns every level of the public sector and its opportunity to create value for the public.
